Tweet of the Day: Paul Ryan puckers up

(CNN) – While he tweeted this on Sunday, we thought it was too good not to post today.

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan often talked about his love for hunting and fishing during his 2012 vice presidential run–but his latest tweet seals with a kiss just how much he loves the outdoors.

    OMG! WHAT? The Republican party wants to make it legal to marry fish? Is that what he's saying or is he just missing his wife?

    Well his 2012 running mate was a dead fish, so I guess he's used to it. At least this time, he's kissing the better end.

    Dumbest comments I've ever read, but what do you expect from the lowest bitter. The guy kissed a fish before he threw it back. And yes, I fish with a polo on as do most people I know who just grab a shirt and... well, put it on.

    And for those of you complaining he's fishing while rates are doubling, guess who's fault that is? Not his. That's who's.

    You voted for Obama, you take credit for everything going wrong now and leave a guy who works more than our supposed President alone when he actually does take time for himself. No doubt he said prior to this pic, "Just watch all the crazies go crazy with this one..."

    You post this tripe and ignore the huge pro-choice rally in Texas???

  11. You guys take this stuff too seriously

    Come on guys, this is a lighthearted CNN article/photo-op. Those of you making this into a hyper-partisan discussion need to lay off the freaking drugs and alcohol, or whatever else is driving you guys to post drivel in a political discussion mid-afternoon on a Monday. This applies to both Democrats and Republicans.

    Our country will never become a civilized place if we can't even have a lighthearted picture of a fish and a politician without it becoming a political fiasco.

    Obviously, very few democrats ever heard of kissing the bass you catch. Ryan is just doing his imitation of Jimmy Houston.

    Hey too seriously, the government needy on this post won't back off out of fear of loosing their largess at the expense from the economic contributors.

    The fish told him that he was really a magical corporate behind....and Ryan puckered right up to kiss it.

    Obamacare is coming soon. Pucker up, and I don't mean your lips either!

    Now we know how he got to be the HOUSE BUDGET COMMITEE CHAIRMAN puckering looks natural to him.

    Either kill it and eat it, or put it back. Playing with it is disgusting.

    He saw Jimmy Houston do this 15 years ago. Paul Ryan doesn't have an original thought in his head.

    Is it a male fish? Can they LEGALLY marry? Do make a cute couple, though.

    Amazingly the Fish has gotten more done in Congress than Ryan.

    I like Paul Ryan and he would have made a good V.P. NEUTRALITY77 I agree with your comment. Those people that made the comments about this story no doubt have done worse than that. Paul Ryan is a smart politican that's why he holds that position.. There is nothing wrong with the picture. I think its an outstanding picture and he looks great. Those comments sound like jealousy and they need to move on and make a life for themselves.
